Notes: This table estimates the e ect of vaccination camps on the gender imbalance in vaccination. An observation is a child aged six months to two years and the dependent variable is either the number of vaccinations the child has received (in Columns 1 and 2) or a dummy for having any vaccines (Columns 3 and 4). # Camps is the number of Family Health and Welfare Camps reported in the village in the previous year. All columns include interactions between gender and state, as well as interactions between gender and village population (linear and squared), gender and village area (linear and squared) and distance to closest CHC or PHC (linear and squared). Columns 1 and 3 includes only women who report wanting equal numbers of boys and girls or more girls; Columns 2 and 4 includes women who report wanting more boys. Other controls: maternal age, maternal education, family income, a dummy for being Hindu, birth order, a quadratic in child age. Full regressions with all controls reported are in Appendix Table W.1.3 (on author’s website).
